Redbreast Dream Cask 32

hero_1400x760The Redbreast Dream Cask 32 year old expression is something special coming from Redbreast and hand selected by Billy Leighton the Master Blender. A while back a sample of this found its way here to explore…

In the busy months that followed after the release I have been enjoying this from time to time savouring every drop but now it is time to write down my notes for this and share my thoughts with you all. But first lets hear what they have to tell us about it themselves…

So, bottled at 46,5%, matured for 25 years in a refill ex Bourbon barrel and 7 years in a first fill Sherry butt. That sounds very promising. Let’s have a closer look!

The nose gives me directly the feeling of loads of dried fruits like raisins, cranberries and apricots all mixed together with fresh cherries, redcurrant, raspberries and oranges. Sweet vanilla notes together with soft warm spices, different nuts, soft chocolate, dark liquorice and a soft minty note in the back… A sweet and fruity nose that becomes a bit less heavy when a couple of drops of water are added and that pushes forward the fresh notes of mint and oranges more.

A balanced dram and the palate shows these same kind of flavours beautifully, adding another layer of creamy vanilla pudding and mixed summer fruits. The roasted nutty flavours mix perfectly with the spices and soft citrus fruit. With some water added the freshness of mint together with sweetness of the dried fruits and mocha is pushed forward. A soft and good length finish follows after this all…

Thanks for sharing this Redbreast!
